BAL -- You sure live up to your moniker, liar.

You've been dipping in that sewer water too, I see. Too bad it's infested your brain to the point you can't think on your own any more...

Muslims, Atheists and Liberals all hate Jesus and his birthday which is celebrated on Christmas. They are trying to change time from 2012 AD to 2012 CE which is a disgrace to the Son of God who will return and rule the world with a rod of Iron and crush all liberals, Atheists and Muslims too.
Why would I hate some dude from 2000 years ago? Assuming he even existed what's there to hate about some carpenter living his life.

I celebrate the solstice, like man has been doing for 10000 years, and what every does every December anyway.

We put up trees (solstice)
Holly (solstice)
Mistletoe (solstice)
Wreaths (solstice)
Candles (solstice)
Get gifts (solstice)
Decorate with Santa Clause (solstice)
Magic reindeer (solstice)
Burn a Yule Log (solstice)

and some people go to church (Christian).

Hrmmm seems like Dec 25th is a Solstice celebration like it has been all along.

CTE -- The Christian Easter holiday was *also* stolen from the pagan's celebration of the Spring Solstice.

Seems the early Christians had nothing of substance on which to promote their cult of personality around this Jewish rabbi, so they had to steal from the Pagans in order to do it!
Just say no

Rod of iron? Are you sure you aren't talking about someone else's penis, precious?

You need to up your meds, darling, because your delusions and fantasies are overwhelming your rational mind!

That's not it at all. First, everyone was pagan. So like some Jews today celebrate Christmas casebook well every is doing it early converts that had no holidays to celebrate still celebrated the Pagan holidays with their families so it was that almost every christian ALSO celebrated the pagan holidays. Many also had to hide the fact that they were Christians.... they were in the closet (the priests it seems, are still there).

I have no problem with them "hiding" there holidays in the more popular pagan ones for survivial. I have a problem with them not coming claean about it now, admitting what they did and stop trying to claim Dec 25 as their holiday and their holiday alone and saying Happy Holidays is an affront. That is the height of Pride.

So it's an *equinox*! The fact still is that the cult of personality surrounding a wise rabbi names Jesus stole most of their tenets from the pagan religions.
